Kendall Alaimo is a lot of things. She is an international activist, a clinical educator, a podcaster, a professionally trained artist, but most importantly Kendall is a survivor. Kendall is a survivor of child sex trafficking. What survived is her voice and she is using it around the world to innovate clinical care for complex trauma survivors. Kendall is an expert in child sexual abuse prevention and medical modalities for complex trauma recovery.
After years working in the prevention of sex crimes against children, Kendall began to see that the picture was bigger and that trauma extended far beyond child sexual abuse. Kendall was deeply concerned about the lack of effective clinical care for not only child sexual abuse survivors but for veterans, first responders, refugees and victims of crime. She has spoken both domestically and internationally in her mission to educate, support and provide hope to populations affected by the fallout of all types of trauma through her Trauma Talk.
Kendall is the executive producer and a host on the Sentenced to Life Podcast. She created this podcast as a platform to share her story, the stories of other trauma survivors and to provide rich clinical education through interviews with fellow mental health experts. This quirky activist is using her mental health megaphone to make noise around the world. Sentenced to Life has been listened to in over 40 countries.
She is a graduate of The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Additionally, Kendall also studied her craft in Japan and was selected to participate as an international artist in residence at The Centro Selva Center for Arts and Sciences in the Amazon Jungle, Peru. She believes in using (in addition to her mental health megaphone) art as a catalyst to create dialog around child sex trafficking. Her art is bright and playful in its aesthetics but dark in the truthful narrative she hopes to shed light on.
Kendall has been featured and interviewed by many media outlets about her story, survivorship and work in the larger community.
